Four new startups emerge at the intersection of Sports, Media & Technology

In partnership with NYC Media Lab, Verizon and Yahoo Sports have awarded $5,000 grants to four teams of entrepreneurs that will build new ventures in the sports arena. Kicking off this month, NYC Media Lab will take entrepreneurs through an 8-week Lean Launchpad program to encourage and support customer discovery and market validation.

The program was announced at the recent Sports/Media/Tech conference, which brought together leaders from the sports, media and entertainment industries to discuss the future of the space. Pulling insights from the event—including research on developing 5G technologies—NYC Media Lab led a recruitment process to find the most promising startups from the City's universities to build or expand related concepts.
